Thomas Tuchel has said that Chelsea star N Golo Kante can ‘frighen’ Everton tonight in their premier league game.
Chelsea host the Merseyside side Everton on Thursday evening in Stamford Bridge, with both team been under pressure to gain points for their own purpose.
First of all, Tuchel’s side are sat third in the league trying to keep themselves in the title race, they need a victory today to close the gap to just two points to premier league leaders Manchester City,
Perhaps, 14th placed Everton are struggling for form under their manager Refael Benitez and are going down the table, The Toffees backline has been shaky all period and they has many injury players at the moment.
Tuchel has already confirmed ahead of the Everton game that he’s welcoming N Golo Kante back from injury this week to the bench at Stamford bridge. in addition the Gaffer has said that his sheer precence among the substitutes will be enough to ‘frighten’ the opponents.
“He’s there to frighten the Everton bench every time he stands up and i call his name out,” according to Thomas Tuchel.
“He is Superman and when he is on the pitch he gives you that feeling, maybe the stadium, he reassures everyone that we have extra force, extra gears, and that’s why he is important to the team.”
Of course, Tuchel is doing the right thing by reintroducing Kante to the bench against Everton, even if there is a doubt to put him straightback to the XI.
There is no longer any secret to the kind of industrious work the frenchman does in the midfield, but he doesnt make it any easier for opponents to deal with him.
It must feel like playing against an extra man when Kante’s on form. For Everton, they’d surely hate the seening of Kante coming on the 20 minutes to apply some serious running power and quailty.
His return couldn’t come any sooner because of the lack of midfield options, though.
